BATON ROUGE, La. – Kevin Faulk’s induction into the College Football Hall of Fame is both well-deserved but a sigh of relief for the former LSU running back. On the field, Faulk still holds the record for the most all-purpose yards in SEC history. Off the field, the former Tiger has endured in the last year, losing both his job as LSU’s running backs coach and, more importantly, his daughter Kevione Faulk at the age of 19. Hearing his name will go down in college football eternity has uplifted the former Tiger.

“Been tough, but like you always say, you gotta have faith. Gotta have faith, and faith means that nothing happens to you. It happens for you. It’s tough, times 20 like I said. To accomplish that, it just means a lot. It lets you know that all the hard work, the dedication, the changing that you did as a person, as a dad, it’s all going in the right direction,” Faulk said.

Faulk does not yet know what his next step in life will be, but he plans on staying close to his family, no matter the job.
